New Update

Fast food chain McDonalds will be offering free wireless

Internet access across its 1,200-strong restaurants in the UK, thus making it

the countrys biggest provider of free wireless broadband access, Reuters has

reported. The move is indicative of the increasing competition in the UKs

broadband market, dominated by contract or pay-as-you-go services, where a

regular hotspot user usually has to pay around 5 ($10.18) for an hour log-on.

There are around 11,477 Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK and major

service providers include The Cloud, BT, and Deutsche Telecoms T-Mobile. And

McDonalds service will account for about 10% of the total Wi-Fi hotspots.
